Chinese instrument makers have made gongs for thousands of years and are deserving of their reputation of making the best in the world. Many processes go into creating the special sound of a Chinese gong, including fine tuning as a result of hand hammering. Indoors or in the garden, the bold design of this hanging gong will enhance one's castle of any size. Gongs were sounded to chase away evil spirits, warn of invading armies, heal the sick and invoke the spirits of the dead. To be touched by a gong was said to bring happiness and strength.
